The first step when using the Py-Authorize API is to initialize the client with your Authorize.net API login name and transaction key. The initialization will only need to occur once in your application and must be setup before any other API calls are used.
import authorize authorize.Configuration.configure( authorize.Environment.TEST, 'api_login_id', 'api_transaction_key', )
In addition to the Authorize.net API login name and transaction key, the
configure method also takes an
Environment parameter. For development
and testing configurations users should use the
variable. For production configurations, users should use the
import authorize authorize.Configuration.configure( authorize.Environment.PRODUCTION, 'api_login_id', 'api_transaction_key', )
